                  Monitoring Outgoing Routes Using BMP
            draft-mi-grow-monitoring-outgoing-bgp-routes-00

Abstract

   The BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP) [RFC7854] is designed to monitor
   BGP [RFC4271] running status, such as BGP peer relationship
   establishment and termination and route updates.  At present, the BMP
   only monitors the incoming bgp routes (Adj-RIB-In), does not monitor
   the outgoing bgp routes (Adj-RIB-Out).

   This draft extends the applicability of BMP [RFC7854] to monitor the
   outgoing bgp routes.

1.  Terminology

   This memo makes use of the terms defined in [RFC7854].

   Adj-RIB-Out: The Adj-RIBs-Out contains the routes for advertisement
   to specific peers by means of the local speaker's UPDATE messages.

   BMP: BGP Monitoring Protocol

   BMS: BGP Monitoring Station

2.  Introduction

   The BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP) introduces the availability of
   monitoring BGP running status, such as BGP peer relationship
   establishment and termination and route updates.  Without BMP, manual
   query is required if you want to know about BGP running status.  With
   BMP, a router can be connected to a monitoring station and configured
   to report BGP running statistics to the station for monitoring, which
